lately it's been a lot of newer painters and local artists, i love living in one of the artistic capitals.

and for famous: Fernando Botero! i'm surprised nobody has mentioned him.

Peter Vink is a New Zealand artist from my hometown Wellington, I absolutely LOVE his paintings. They capture New Zealands scenery so well and they look so real.

^i love the ones droogist posted as well and i also like balthus, helena!
i went to the balthus retrospective in venice a few years ago, it was overwhelming...he himself was so beautiful, too.

from the past...i dwell in the atmosphere of manet, lautrec, modersohn-becker, goya, vermeer, kahlo, soutine, rembrandt, twombly, jorn, bacon, vuillard, degas, spilliaert, ...and many more...for all different reasons

recent painters that i find interesting

- xenia hausner
- yoshitomo nara
- neo rauch
- luc tuymans
- marlene dumas

and peter doig (no picture)
